Carina and the Six String Preacher’s “Jazz Noir” music is a spicy blend of jazz, surf tango, and pop with a touch of blood and a dash of cinnamon. Based out of Buffalo NY, the band — formed by singer/songwriter Carina M. and guitarist/songwriter Vincent James Mastrantonio— spent most of their first year writing, recording, and performing their originals as a duo. In 2013 they were joined by drummer John Brady and began to perform at some of the most renowned venues and festivals in the region. That summer they released their debut full length album “Liquid Think”. The following year they launched their YouTube channel and uploaded two official music videos within 5 months — “Cabin Fever” and “Forget About Me”. Both songs were a sneak peak into their EP, “Why You So Wild, Crocodile” which was later released and showcased at the revered PAUSA Art House in December 2015.
Their music has been recognized by numerous publications and bloggers, describing their sound as “…dark, but one you want to kick back and bask in, with Vincent’s multifaceted musical background and Carina’s Billy Holiday- meets-Morrissey aura too soothing to flee.” (Michael Farrell - Buffalo News) and “Clean, fluid, and inventive guitar lines dance between Carina's sultry purr and seduces your ears and mind alike. But like all good seductresses she always leaves you wanting more.” (Bob Silvestri - bestofwny.com). Their audience has been described as “spellbound” during a performance at 189 Public House, further elaborating that it was “a performance that varied in tempos yet when it was over – you knew you just saw something special.” (Tony Zambito - jazzbuffalo.org). Carina and The Six String Preacher are currently working on their third album, and plan to continue writing and releasing music and videos.
